Further discussion on the implications of Global Guerillaism in an urban center.
I disagree with PHK that we "backed the wrong side" in Vietnam ( what were we going to do, help consolidate a Stalinist regime in the late 1940's even as we were trying like hell to keep Communism out of Italy, France, West Berlin and Greece? How would have Acheson and Truman made that work?) though we certainly did back the politically inept side. Nevertheless, a well-written essay about one of the fathers of COIN whose ideas need greater circulation today.
